Gooood Morrrning T-Nation!! This is probably the third time I've asked for help and the 1000th time I've wanted to. Currently I'm 227lbs and 15-20% bodyfat (my calipers tell me something different each time). Two years ago I weighed 300lbs at who knows what bf% and a year ago I was at the peak of my diet/workout phase, motivation came easy, and I was having no problem maintining my food and training log, which I did consistently for the last six months of that year. At my best shape I was 214lbs 13%bf. For the last year (4/03 to 4/04)I have been ashamed of myself, I've had no consistency in the gym or the kitchen, I couldn't go 3 days without cheating on my diet; which usually meant fast food, and for the last few months I've really slacked of in the weight room. But I've joined a more hardcore gym which really motivates me and I'm on my second day of the fat fast. My new workout is to do Chins, Pullups, dips, bench, Squats, Deadlifts, and Rows in one work out. 3sets of 8 reps, as I feel that I've really ignored certain muscle groups.
I just wanted to ask the T-Nation for any thoughts or ideas (be it for diet or training) that could help out in my new program.
